Dan Huberty will face Humble anesthesiologist Dr. Susan Curling in the race to replace retiring state Rep. Joe Crabb, R-Atascocita.

Huberty, a vice president at Clean Fuels Energy Corp. and president of the Humble School Board, never had the most campaign cash in the four-way race but was swarmed with endorsements from conservative groups: The Conservative Republicans of Texas, the Texas State Teachers Association, energy mogul (and Huberty's boss) T. Boone Pickens and Houston state Sen. Dan Patrick, to name a few.

A month ago Curling said, “If you ask anyone which candidate has come the farthest, I think hands down that would have to be me. Prior to this campaign starting, nobody knew who Dr. Curling was.”  After personally knocking on thousands of doors in the district, that’s clearly not the case anymore.
